I am really impressed with the Qu-Chi band to relieve my hayfever symptoms. I love that I no longer need to rely on antihistamines and eye drops every summer. I like that there is a choice of colours and only costs £13.
When my pharmacist told me about the Qu-Chi band I have to admit that I kind of dismissed it as I am not really into alternative medicine. I would rather take a pill that I know works!! The problem is that the pills were not working, my eyes were still itching, my throat sore, I had headaches all day and started to get nosebleeds (probably due to all the sneezing). So I decided to give the acupressure band ago.
There were 2 colours available and I bought the pink one, and think it looks really trendy. But I did not buy this as a fashion item!! My pharmacist showed me how to put it on as it is important to get it on the correct acupuncture point, although there are clear instructions on the packaging with photos.
I couldnt believe how fast it worked, and how effective it was! As soon as I put the band on, my eyes stopped itching, about 5 mins later my headache had gone and my nose was clear. It was really strange. So I decided to take the band off and see what would happen. My symptoms came back virtually straight away! I wear mine all day now its a good job they are washable.
